CTERA Reports Rapid Growth in 2020 Amid Increased Demand for the Multi-Cloud Global File System

Enterprises Prioritising Remote Work Solutions Delivering HQ-Grade Experiences Anywhere

CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, today announced strong growth in 2020 driven by continued demand for its multi-cloud global file system. CTERA enters 2020 having realised a 47 percent year-over-year annual recurring revenue increase in its edge-to-cloud solutions. CTERA today delivers the most broadly implemented enterprise cloud file storage solution, deployed in over 50,000 sites in 110 countries and utilised by millions of corporate users daily.

As organisations worldwide close large campuses in favour of regional branches and satellite or work-from-home offices, they are prioritising global file system technologies that centralise data access and deliver an HQ-grade experience from any edge location or device. Additionally, they are leveraging the global file system’s built-in security and data protection tools to stop the proliferation of ransomware and other cybercrime attacks through increasing remote file access channels.

CTERA’s business growth capped an impressive year highlighted by new Fortune 500 customer wins, including leading global brands such as W.L. Gore and Festo, state governments including the State of Texas and the State of Florida, as well as prominent U.S. federal civilian and military wins driven by CTERA’s U.S. DoD Approved Product List (APL)-certified private cloud solution.

Additional 2020 highlights include:

  • CTERA 7.0: Setting the Bar for Global File Systems – CTERA introduced industry-leading product innovation in 2020, including ultra-fast edge-to-cloud synchronisation, secure geo-segmentation, a new MacOS suite, and built-in data discovery and migration from legacy file storage. CTERA 7.0 represents the fastest, most feature-rich, and most secure multi-cloud global file system in the industry.
  • CTERA for DevOps: Programmable Infrastructure – CTERA introduced a DevOps SDK that enables organisations to automate their file services deployments with just a few lines of code. CTERA’s DevOps SDK was quickly adopted in 2020 by our customer community and is used today for managing thousands of sites and millions of file shares.
  • CTERA Ecosystem: Multi-Cloud Enabler – 2020 marked yet another year of expanding partnerships with key cloud and infrastructure providers, including the launch of CTERA File for HPE SimpliVity, a software-defined hybrid file add-on for HPE HCI. CTERA also received the IBM North America Channel Ecosystem Excellence award, as well as new designations from AWS including the AWS Digital Workplace Competency and the AWS Outposts Ready certification.
  • CTERA Patents: Leading Innovation – CTERA was issued 10 new patents, bringing the total to 23 approved patents for its global file system. New patents included recognised techniques for securely sharing files from cloud storage and for optimising data flows in hybrid cloud storage systems.
